Basketball Legend, Michael Jordan once turned down a two-hour, $100 million appearances, former agent during a radio program.
David Falk appeared on WFAN’s “Boomer and Gio,” where he discussed how picky his famous client was when it came to projects.
“I brought him a deal three years ago for $100 million. All he had to do was, other than giving his name and likeness, make one two-hour appearance to announce the deal and he turned it down,” Falk said Wednesday, without providing any additional details on the deal.
“God bless him. He’s been so successful, it gives him an opportunity to do whatever the hell he wants or not to do things he doesn’t want. I really admire that. He’s very, very selective in the things he wants to be involved in.”
Falk said that it wasn’t the only impressive deal that Jordan has turned down in recent years. While in Asia with the Hornets a few seasons ago for a preseason game, Falk said that Jordan was offered $7 million to take part in a golf tournament, but turned the offer down.
On a Forbe’s Profile on the basketball legend, his net worth is $2.1 billion, there’s a good chance he’s going to continue his reign as the world’s richest athlete for quite some time.
The former Chicago Bulls star has recently been the main subject of an ESPN documentary ‘The Last Dance’ a story on Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls.
